Healing Hands – July 2017

Dear Friends and Patients,

I was thinking about July the other day and I thought I’d find out a few facts about the 4th of July. I didn’t know this, but the Declaration of Independence was not signed by all representatives until August, 1776. To make it official, John Hancock, President of the Continental Congress signed it. Now, can you guess where the saying “put your John Hancock on it” came from?

The Fourth of July is not complete without parades, beer, hot dogs, and fireworks. Fireworks are enjoyed by almost everyone including me and I’ll drive somewhere just to see a fireworks display. You should have your choice of several locations in your area on the Fourth, or even the day before. Be respectful and go out and support one.

Happy Birthday, America!!!!!

“COOL FACTS”

for the Fourth of July…

 

*  On June 24, 1826, Thomas Jefferson sent a letter to Roger C. Weightman, declining an invitation to come to Washington, D.C., to help celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence. It was the last letter that Jefferson, who was gravely ill, ever wrote.

*  Both Thomas Jefferson and John Adams died on Independence Day, July 4, 1826. declaration

*  The 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence did not sign at the same time, nor did they sign on July 4, 1776. The official event occurred on August 2, 1776, when 50 men signed it. (Getting that many signers to show up all at once was probably a big thing back then if you know what I mean.)

The names of the signers of the Declaration of Independence were withheld from the public for more than six months to protect the signers. If independence had not been achieved, the treasonable act of the signers would have, by law, resulted in their deaths. (Things were a lot different back then. They took a big chance signing that document.)

*  Thomas McKean was the last to sign in January, 1777. (They didn’t have the internet, or they could have signed that way for sure.)

The origin of Uncle Sam probably began in 1812, when Samuel Wilson was a meat packer who provided meat to the US Army. The meat shipments were stamped with the initials, U.S. Someone joked that the initials stood for “Uncle Sam”. This joke eventually led to the idea of Uncle Sam symbolizing the United States government. (Believe it or not Uncle Sam is seen in a good way a lot of times, and a bad way some of the time.)

>>>JOKE of the MONTH<<<

 

Many years ago, my father visited America, from Europe, for the very first time. He wanted to go with me to the supermarket, so I invited him along.

Going up and down the aisles with me, he asked questions about things he saw.

“Vas diss?? Powdered orange juice??” he asked.

I said, “Yes, Dad, you just add a little water, and you have fresh orange juice.”

A few minutes later, in a different aisle, he blurted out, “Und vas dis?? Powdered milk?”

I said, “Yes, Dad, you just add a little water, and you have fresh milk!”

A few minutes later, in a different aisle, he yelled out, “Und give a look here!! Baby Powder!! Vat a country, vat a country!”

CHIROPRACTIC STORY

“I have been seeing my chiropractor for terrible foot pain during hiking. It turned out that I was totally out of alignment, my hips were not level, one leg was longer than the other, and I had some neck bones way out of alignment, as well as one near where my back pack was carried. The problem was not in my foot as I thought, it was my entire body that was misaligned and compensating by making my muscles tight all over.

I had an appointment 2 days ago. He tested my nerves in my neck. They have to do with eye movement, smiling and frowning. He did the adjustment.

Now comes the really good part. I have low blood pressure, normally 80-90/50 and very bad circulation. I have to move at night because my arms fall asleep and I am unable to move them. If I lean on my arm, or cross my legs, I lose feeling and can’t move them. I always thought this was an overgrowth of my candida, and I know the problem gets worse when I eat sugar or wheat.

The night of my adjustment I slept really well and had dreams which I can actually remember! And guess what? No circulation problems! I looked up the nerves he worked on and sure enough, one of them was related to my blood pressure!

So I tested this yesterday by eating some organic cookies! That should have made it worse. But no, I slept really well! My hands are warmer! I can cross my legs! I’m leaning on my elbow while I write this without losing circulation! I took my BP this morning out of curiosity, and it was 117/75! Woo Hoo!

Amazing! Hard to believe I went for foot pain, and something totally unexpected happened! Why didn’t I know that sooner? I never would have guessed, because my neck did not hurt.

Chiropractic Quotes

The person who takes medicine must recover twice, once from the disease and once from the medicine.” -William Osler, MD

Weight loss Update

As I mentioned in earlier newsletters, I have added a new supplement to enhance your energy, fat burning metabolism and weight loss. Losing a pound a day has never been easier. This new supplement combines MCTs (medium chain triglycerides) found in coconut and a formula which puts your body in a ketosis state. This is where your body uses fat (ketone bodies), not carbohydrate burning for energy. You may have read how MCT has been used to help brain function, mood, brain fog, Alzheimer’s and cognitive function.  Ketone metabolism has been used by athletes to help increase energy and endurance, as well as help them keep a muscular lean body. Maintaining a state of ketosis (not the same as diabetic ketosis which is a serious disease condition) reduces inflammation, helps keep a steadier blood sugar level throughout the day, helps improve muscle tissue, athletic performance, moods, cognitive function and helps with weight loss.

If you would like to know more about this ketone supplement, call the office.

Please Note: I have a lot of patients ask about the Red light Fat loss Process. Many of you, who have been thinking about it, then see a friend or relative who tried it and see how effective it is and are upset when you find out we are booked solid for the next few weeks. You have pretty much lost the summer if you wanted to try it. The fact is, it is in very high demand. I try to give my patients first chance for appointments. Unfortunately, we are already booked up into mid July. We have a cancellation waiting list a mile long. If you even think you want to experience an introductory session, you must commit and call to reserve your appointment, now.

Weeds Can Cause You A Lot of PAIN

 

After a long winter, there are a lot of people that are itching to get outside and enjoy the festivities that accompany spring.  Believe it or not, one of those activities enjoyed by many is gardening; however, individuals often anticipate the aches and pains that come along with it. I don’t know about you but when I do weeds, I’m bending over for long periods of time, I’m twisting, pulling, jerking, and this plays havoc on my lower back and arms. Listed below are a few tips and tricks to help you prevent injury and care for the health of your back.


Warm-up

Wow. Most people don’t understand that gardening is a vigorous activity and because of this your body needs to be properly warmed up.  It’s no surprise injuries arise when suddenly we are asking our bodies to twist, turn, lift, and pull after being less active during the winter months.  Going for a short 5-10 minute walk or stretching prior to gardening can significantly decrease your risk of back pain!

Pace Yourself

Spring and summer fill up fast between graduation parties, golf tournaments, weddings, lake days, and the list goes on.  All of a sudden you look at your calendar and you have one weekend left open and a big gardening job ahead!  Set realistic goals about what you want accomplished, pace yourself, and take frequent breaks to stretch and hydrate. Water is super important to your health.

Body Mechanics

If possible, raise the garden off the ground or user planters to avoid bending over.  If you must bend, don’t bend at the waist and reach.  Instead, position yourself close to the ground and cushion your knees.  There are also garden tools with long handles available to help avoid the reaching motion.  When it comes to lifting heavy pots, bushes, or watering cans use a wheel barrow to help make transferring these heavy objects easier and remember to lift using the strength of your legs.

Switch it up

By alternating activities your body can switch up its posture and which muscles are being stressed often helping to avoid those repetitive-motion injuries.  Divide your tasks up into smaller sections that allow your body to change position and give muscles a break. If it’s good for patients, it’s good for doctors as well.

Visit us today if you’re going to do any gardening. We can help identify and treat most underlying spinal problems that could predispose your body to injury or make those gardening aches and pains worse.  Being proactive about your spinal health will help ensure you continue to enjoy the joys and benefits of gardening.

If you or anyone you know is experiencing pain while gardening, tell them to give us a call; 518-489-2628

Healing Hands – April 2017

Dear Friends,

It is April, and the other day I was reading something from Oprah. She said, “Everyday brings tremendous possibility – a chance to live more fully, love more deeply and learn something new.” This newsletter is all about you learning things in small chunks. I could rant and rave about how important your adjustments are, but I choose to let you make your own decisions because when all the dust clears, you’re the only one responsible for your health. You’re older, you know about health, and if you choose not to get adjusted, to optimize your health watch your weight, to help you and april foolyour nervous system function, that’s your call. Whatever you do though, get out and enjoy your life because there is a big, beautiful world out there just waiting to be experienced. By the way, as you know, April 1st is April Fools Day.

  

“SOME COOL FACTS ABOUT…”

…the Month of April

  1. April is National Pet Month and Bowel Cancer Awareness Month… in the UK,
  2. In the US however, April is the Awareness Month for Mathematics, Stress and throughout the world it is Jazz Awareness Month.
  3. “April is the cruelest month…” It’s a time to pay your taxes, and file with the IRS.
  4. “It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen,” (opening line of George Orwell’s 1984).
  5. ‘April’ was the 250th most common name for a baby girl in the United Kingdom in 2013. In the US it was 423rd.
  6. According to a recent analysis, April showers more often than not do not bring May flowers.
  7. According to the Oxford Dictionary an ‘April gentleman’ once meant ‘a foolish man; specifically a newly-married husband, considered as a fool.’
  8. “Men are April when they woo, December when they wed.”
  9. Four US Presidents were born and four died during the month of April.
  10. No film with ‘April’ in its title, or actress named ‘April’ has won an Oscar — but in 1994 April Ferry was nominated for Best Costume Design for ‘Maverick’.

 

APRIL QUOTES

 

If every fool wore a crown, we should all be kings.  ~Welsh Proverb

The aim of a joke is not to degrade the human being, but to remind him that he is already degraded. ~George Orwell

Republicans believe every day is the Fourth of July, but the democrats believe every day is April 15. ~Ronald Reagan

 

>>>JOKE of the MONTH<<<

A taxpayer received a strongly worded “second notice” that his taxes were overdue. Hastening to the collector’s office, he paid his bill, saying apologetically that he had overlooked the first notice. “Oh,” confided the collector with a smile, “we don’t send out first notices. We have found that the second notices are more effective.

 

What is a lesion in your spine?

Everyday I’m in the office, someone comes in and tells me about a pain somewhere in their neck, back, shoulder, etc. We get results with these people, but most have lesions in their spine. If you’re reading this, most likely you’ve had lesions or do have lesions as well in your spine.

So what is a disc lesion in your spine? Great question and I think one that you’ll want to understand.

Put simply, a lesion is the name given to an abnormal change which occurs to any tissue or organ, caused by a disease or injury. The abnormal growths of tissue can occur from some form of trauma, including an accident, spinal cord injury, or serious infections, such as syphilis or HIV. So here’s why I’m telling you about lesions today. If you have an accident, or injury, call this office as soon as possible. We’ll do a thorough examination and let you know if your body may suffer from a lesion in the future. If you feel okay, that’s great. Thing is that doesn’t mean anything when it comes to you developing a lesion. If you’ve suffered from any kind of fall, accident or car accident in the last six months, call the office today and schedule for a check up. It’ll be worth it.

***Amazing FACTS About Your Body***

   =With the 60,000 miles of blood vessels inside the average human body, you could circumnavigate Earth two and a half times.

=The human eye is so sensitive that if the Earth were flat, you could spot a candle flickering at night from up to 30 miles away.

=Nerve impulses travel to and from the brain at speeds of up to 250 miles per hour, faster than a Formula 1 racecar.

  = When you blush, the lining of your stomach blushes too.

=The human brain can read up to 1,000 words per minute.

=Inside your belly button are thousands of bacteria that form an ecosystem the size of an entire rainforest.

=When in love, the human brain releases the same cocktail of neurotransmitters and hormones that are released by amphetamines. This leads to increased heart rate, loss of appetite and sleep, and intense feelings of excitement.

=You can see ultraviolet light, the ability is just filtered out by the eye’s lens. Some people have undergone surgery to remove the lense and can detect ultraviolet light.

=An adult is made up of 7,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (7 octillion) atoms. For perspective, there’s a ‘measly’ 300,000,000,000 (300 billion) stars in our galaxy.

“COOL FACTS”

Easter Facts

  • The first Easter baskets were made to look like bird’s nests.
  • The traditional act of painting eggs is called Pysanka.
  • The custom of giving eggs at Easter time has been traced back to Egyptians, Persians, Gauls, Greeks and Romans, to whom the egg was a symbol of life.
  • In medieval times a festival of egg-throwing was held in church, during which the priest would throw a hard-boiled egg to one of the choir boys. It was then tossed from one choir boy to the next and whoever held the egg when the clock struck 12 was the winner and retained the egg.
  • Easter is now celebrated (in the words of the Book of Common Prayer) on the first Sunday after the full moon which happens on or after March 21, the Spring Equinox.
  • Easter Bonnets are a throwback to the days when the people denied themselves the pleasure of wearing fine angels for the duration of Lent.
  • Some Churches still keep up the old tradition of using evergreens – symbolic of eternal life – embroidered in red on white, or woven in straw, but most now prefer displays of flowers in the spring colors of green, yellow and white.
  • Americans celebrate Easter with a large Easter egg hunt on the White House Lawn.  (I think)
  •  76% of people eat the ears on chocolate bunnies first.
  • Americans consume over 16 million jellybeans on Easter, enough to circle the globe three times over.

 

“It’s Tax Time”

(Some of your favorite comics’ views..)

“It’s fitting that April 14 is National Pecan Day because today, we recognize nuts. And tomorrow, on April 15, we pay our taxes to support them.” -Craig Ferguson

I’m not going to pay taxes. When they say I’m going to prison, I’ll say no, prisons cost taxpayers a lot of money. You keep what it would have cost to incarcerate me, and we’ll call it even.” –Jimmy Kimmel

“The IRS says it’s been getting death threats since the health care bill passed because the IRS is going to be the ones in charge of implementing it. They say the threats people are making to the IRS are so bad, that they are actually hindering the IRS’s ability to threaten people.” –Jay Leno

Healing Hands – March 2017

Posted on by Courtney Rubin in Uncategorized Comments Off on Healing Hands – March 2017

healing hand

Dear Friends,

Well it’s not Spring yet, but the year is moving on rapidly. Happy Saint Patty’s Day. I have a question for you. “Why would you never WANT TO iron a 4-leaf clover?” The answer is simple. “You don’t want to press your luck.”

“COOL FACTS ABOUT…”

…the Irish

  • 34 million Americans have Irish ancestry, according to the 2003 US That’s almost nine times the population of Ireland, which has 4.1 million people.
  • Nine of the people who signed our Declaration of Independence were of Irish origin, and nineteen Presidents of the United States proudly claim Irish heritage — including our first President, George Washington.
  • Some American towns have “Irish” names. You could visit: Mount Gay-Shamrock, West Virginia; Shamrock Lakes, Indiana; Shamrock, Oklahoma; Shamrock, Texas; Dublin, California and Dublin, Ohio.
  • The harp is the symbol of Ireland. The color green is also commonly associated with Ireland, which is also known as “the Emerald Isle.”
  • The Irish flag is green, white and orange. The green symbolizes the people of the south, and orange, the people of the north. White represents the peace that brings them together as a nation.
  • The name “leprechaun” has several origins. It could be from the Irish Gaelic word “leipreachan,” which means “a kind of aqueous sprite.” Or, it could be from “leath bhrogan,” which means “shoemaker.”

 

Fun Facts about Clovers

  • According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the highest number of leaves found on a clover is 14. (Hard to believe huh?)
  • One estimate suggests that there are about 10,000 regular three-leaf clovers for every lucky four-leaf clover.
  • Legend says that each leaf of the clover means something: the first is for hope, the second for faith, the third for love and the fourth for luck.

                                                

    IRISH QUOTES

“Who gossips with you will gossip of you.”

“There are fish in the sea better than have ever been caught.”

>>>JOKE of the MONTH<<<

Joe the lawyer died suddenly, at the age of 45. He got to the gates of Heaven, and the angel standing there looked at him and said, “We’ve been waiting a long time for you.” “What do you mean,” he asked, “I’m only 45, in the prime of my life. Why did I have to die now?” The angel replied, “45? You’re not 45, you’re 82.”  “Wait a minute. If you think I’m 82 then you have the wrong guy. I’m only 45. I can show you my birth certificate.” “Hold on. Let me go check,” the angel said as he disappeared inside. After a few minutes the angel returned. “Sorry, but by our records you are 82. I checked all the hours you have billed your clients, and you have to be 82…”

Do You Have… Disc Lesions

     We have 23 discs in our spinal column. A disc is the structure sandwiched between the spinal bones (vertebrae). The disc is made up of a fibrous outer ring and a gel-like center. Discs sit in between the spinal vertebrae and act as a cushion or shock absorber between the bones. They also help the spine curve easily and join the vertebrae together.

     Many researchers believe that disc lesions are the single most common cause of lower back pain. Surprisingly, disc wear and tear can manifest as early as your teenage years.

     Over the years, the disc begins to loose a little fluid and small lesions, or cracks, begin to form on the outer wall. The soft gel-like center then begins to bulge or push the fibrous outer wall out of shape. The result is called a protrusion. 

     If the center bulges completely out of the ring, it is called a disc prolapse.

     The prolapsed disc can press on the spinal cord or put extreme pressure on the spinal nerves resulting in pain that affects sitting, standing, walking, lifting, urinating, defecating, sneezing, standing, coughing and makes moving nearly impossible. Numbness of the leg or loss of muscular control may also occur in extreme cases.

     If you have any of these symptoms, please call this office immediately and discuss your treatment options.

***Amazing FACTS About Your Body***

It is hard to grasp just how small the atoms that make up your body are until you take a look at the sheer number of them. An adult is made up of around (7 octillion) atoms 7,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.

Your FOOT & your FOREARM are the same length.  < ———Really they are!

Intelligent people have more ZINC & COPPER in their hair.

When you see blood oozing from a cut in your finger, you might assume that it is red because of the iron in it, just as rust has a reddish hue.

But the presence of the iron is a coincidence.

The red color arises because the iron is bound in a ring of atoms in hemoglobin and it’s the shape of this structure that produces the color.

Just how red your hemoglobin is depends on whether there is oxygen bound to it.

MARCH MADNESS FACTS (for all the basketball fans!)

  • There is a correlation between the distance a team travels for a game and the outcome, according to an analysis by the News & Observer of Raleigh, N.C. Over the past 12 years, teams playing within 100 miles won 77 percent of their games. At 250 miles, teams won 69 percent, and teams that traveled 500 miles or more won 46.5 percent.
  • The odds of picking a perfect bracket randomly are 9,223,372,036,854,775,808 to 1, or more than nine quintillion to one.    (So … you’re saying I have a chance … )
  • The No. 16 seeds are 0 for 92 vs. No. 1 seeds. (Well, at least they have a chance of picking a perfect bracket.)
  • A No. 16 seed did once take a No. 1 seed, Michigan State, into overtime though, and there have also been two games decided by one point between 1’s and 16’s.
  • No. 2 and No. 3 seeds are also a combined 46-2 since 2001.
  • Two No. 1 seeds in the Championship game have faced each other five times since 1979.
  • The term “March Madness” is a trademark jointly-held by the NCAA and the Illinois High School Association, who battled over it in court. The precedent-setting case created the legal concept of “dual-use trademark.”
  • The FBI estimates that more than $2.5 billion is illegally wagered annually on March Madness each year. Less than 4% of that amount is wagered legally in Nevada.

Healing Hands – February 2017

Posted on by Courtney Rubin in Uncategorized Comments Off on Healing Hands – February 2017

healing hands

Dear Patients and Friends,

Every February, across the country, candy, flowers, and gifts are exchanged between loved ones, all in the name of St. Valentine. But who is this mysterious saint and why do we celebrate this holiday?

The history of Valentine’s Day — and its patron saint — is shrouded in mystery. But we do know that dr jay heart February has long been a month of romance. St. Valentine’s Day, as we know it today, contains vestiges of both Christian and ancient Roman tradition. So, who was Saint Valentine and how did he become associated with this ancient rite? Today, the Catholic Church recognizes at least three different saints named Valentine or Valentinus.

According to one legend, Valentine actually sent the first Valentine greeting himself. While in prison, it is believed that Valentine fell in love with a young girl who may have been his jailor’s daughter — who visited him during his confinement. Before his death, it is alleged that he wrote her a letter, which he signed ‘From your Valentine,’ an expression that is still in use today.

Although the truth behind the Valentine legends is murky, the stories certainly emphasize his appeal as a sympathetic, heroic, and, most importantly, romantic figure. It’s no surprise that by the Middle Ages, Valentine was one of the most popular saints in England and France.

While some believe that Valentine’s Day is celebrated in the middle of February to commemorate the anniversary of Valentine’s death or burial — which probably occurred around 270 B.C.E. — others claim that the Christian church may have decided to celebrate Valentine’s feast day in the middle of February in an effort to ‘Christianize’ celebrations of the pagan Lupercalia festival.

 

WHAT ABOUT THAT CUPID GUY?

Cupid, the child-like, winged deity often associated with modern Valentine’s Day, is actually the son of Venus, the Roman goddess of love. In Greek mythology, Cupid is known as Aphrodite’s son, Eros.

 

 

NEW YEAR NEW YOU

 

     After you celebrate the New Year you make those dreaded resolutions. One of the most common is weight loss. If you haven’t heard, we have a natural metabolic program as well as our Exclusive RED Light LED therapy to help you achieve your goals.

Came the delicious confection
But I am at a loss to answer
A most curious question
How can two pounds of chocolates
So delicious on the lips
Manage in just one night
To put 5 lbs on my hips!

 

PRESIDENT’S DAY

Washington’s Birthday is the official name designated to what many of us know as President’s Day. During the month of February the birthday of two of our greatest Presidents takes place: both George Washington, who was born on Feb. 22nd and Abraham Lincoln, born on Feb. 12th.

However, Washington’s birthday has been publicly celebrated since he was in office, before Abraham Lincoln was even born. Much of the debate over the name of the holiday springs from the fact that states can follow their own holidays how they see fit and many of them choose to also honor Lincoln, calling the celebration President’s Day.

It was in 1968 that the term President’s Day came up for legal consideration in the Congress but was shot down, though the holiday was moved to fall between the two President’s birthdays. Again in the 1980’s there was a resurgence of the term with advertisers which solidified the holiday name in American culture. Today, few Americans prefer to call the holiday Washington’s Birthday in lieu of President’s Day.

VALENTINE QUOTE

I don’t understand why Cupid was chosen to represent Valentine’s Day. When I think about romance, the last thing on my mind is a short, chubby toddler coming at me with a weapon. ~Author Unknown

Avoid the Big-Time Corporate Heart Attack

By Al Sears, MD

You probably know that Enron CEO Ken Lay’s life was cut short by a heart attack. His doctors knew he had heart disease. In fact, he had suffered several heart attacks before the one that killed him … and he’d been taking statin drugs to lower his cholesterol for years.

Statin drugs work by blocking the body’s production of cholesterol. This lowers total cholesterol – not just “bad” LDL cholesterol but also “good” HDL cholesterol. And to avoid developing heart disease – even to reverse damage that’s already been done – HDL is key.

HDL can reduce your risk of heart disease regardless of your LDL levels. The Framingham study (the most reliable and unbiased source of data for heart disease risk) shows that if your HDL is high enough, your LDL will have no negative impact on your heart health. In fact, if your HDL is above 85, you are at no greater risk of heart disease if your total cholesterol is 350 than if it’s 150.

Here are four natural ways to increase your HDL:

  1. Exercise in intervals – at progressively higher intensity as you get used to it – for 20 minutes every other day. TAKE IS SLOW!
  2. Eliminate trans-fats from your diet. Cut out breaded/fried foods, commercially baked crackers and cookies, and anything containing hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated vegetable or soybean oil.
  3. Increase your omega-3 fatty acids by adding fish oils, avocados, nuts, olives, and eggs to your diet.
  4. Add fresh garlic to your meals as often as possible.

Intimacy and Your Health

Our bodies are wonderful machines that can do incredible things for us. They can make us

feel great, provides energy and produces feel good endorphins. There have been numerous studies that show “intimacy” can enhance immune function, relieve pain, reduce stress and ease depression. One study, conducted in South Wales, found that the mortality risk was 50% lower among men who had frequent sexual activity. Other studies have found both men and women reported relief of lower back pain. Another study found that 32% of women reported better sleep and decreased depression. Two 2001 studies cited some relief of migraines, in women, as well as relief of PMS cramps.

A young woman was taking an afternoon nap. After she woke up, she told her husband, “I just dreamt that you gave me a pearl necklace for Valentine’s Day.
What do you think it means?” “You shall know tonight”, he said.
That evening, the man came home with a small package and gave it to his wife. Delighted, she opened it. She found a book entitled “The Meaning of Dreams“.

 

Benefits of Pets

Does owning a pet make people healthier? Hard evidence is less than conclusive, but the health benefits of owning a pet may decrease your blood pressure, cholesterol levels and feelings of loneliness. Pets encourage you to exercise, spend more time outdoors and present more opportunities for socialization.

Many of you are reflecting on how you can make your lives better in the New Year. The gyms fill up, self help books fly off the shelf, yoga classes are full and everyone starts out, in earnest, to improve their relationships, health, prosperity, etc. Then, around March, we find ourselves back in the same old rut. The enthusiasm wanes and life goes on as it always had. Few of us actually make any real change in our lives.

I’m not here to depress you but I am here to help. If you have your health you will have the energy and motivation to improve other areas of your life.

I offer you the tools to obtain better health. Chiropractic, unique supplements such as Keto/OS, Red light Fat Loss treatments, as well as customized metabolic weight loss programs. The saying goes; showing up is 90% of success. We can’t make it easier than that. Make a difference in your life. Call the office today and commit to achieving your health goals.

“COOL FACTS”

  Did You Know?

Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) made sketches of a submarine and William Bourne, a British mathematician, drew plans for a submarine in 1578. But it was only in 1620 that Cornelius van Drebbel, a Dutch inventor, managed to build a submarine. He wrapped a wooden rowboat tightly in waterproofed leather and had air tubes with floats to the surface to provide oxygen. Of course, there were no engines yet, so the oars went through the hull at leather gaskets. He took the first trip with 12 oarsmen in the Thames River – staying submerged for 3 hours.

Coffee is the world’s most popular stimulant: 4 out of 5 Americans drink it, consuming more than 400 million cups a day. Consumption in Scandinavian countries is more than 12kg (26lb) per capita. With more than 25 million people employed in the industry, coffee is one of the largest trade industries in the world.

The word “tip” is also related to coffee. It comes from old London coffeehouses where the waiters’ brass boxes were etched with the inscription, “To Insure Promptness.”

 Interesting Quotes

   “I think the biggest mistake most people make when they pick their first job is they don’t worry enough about whether they’ll love the work, and they worry more about whether it’s good experience.”                                                          [Steve Ballmer]

   “Every great human achievement is preceded by extended periods of dedicated, concentrated effort.”                                                                   [Brian Tracy]

Without thinking twice, draw a circle in the air with your left hand. If you drew the circle clockwise, chances are you’re left-handed. More men are left-handed (12.6% of the male population) than women (9.9% of the female population).

Reverse Roughness and Dryness

Olive oil is an effective moisturizer. Massage some into your hands and give it time to sink in. (You may also want to put on a pair of rubber or latex gloves on to avoid getting oil stains on whatever you touch.) After about 30 minutes, take off the gloves and wipe the oil off your soft, moisturized hands with a dry paper towel. You won’t believe the difference. I didn’t! TRY IT.

>>>JOKE of the MONTH<<<

A local United Way office realized that the organization had never received a donation from the town’s most successful lawyer. The person in charge of contributions called him to persuade him to contribute.
“Our research shows that out of a yearly income of at least $500,000, you are not giving a single penny to charity. Wouldn’t you like to give back to the community in some way?”

The lawyer mulled this over for a moment and replied, “First, did your research also show that my mother is dying after a long illness, and has medical bills that are several times her annual income?”

Embarrassed, the United Way rep mumbled, “Um … no.”

The lawyer interrupts, “or that my brother, a disabled veteran, is blind and confined to a wheelchair?”

The stricken United Way rep began to stammer out an apology, but was interrupted again.

“or that my sister’s husband died in a traffic accident,” the lawyer’s voice rising in indignation, “leaving her penniless with three children?!” The humiliated United Way rep, completely beaten, said simply, “I had no idea…”

On a roll, the lawyer cut him off once again, “So if I don’t give any money to them, why should I give any to you?”

Dear God, my prayer for 2016 is a FAT bank account and a THIN body. Please don’t mix it up like you did this year.

What happened to the man who thought about the evils of drinking in the New Year? He gave up thinking.

The Story of Chiropractic

 

The explained to Harvey Lillard that he felt that this “bone was out of place” and that it could be causing pressure on his spinal cord, and that this pressure could be the reason that Harvey was now deaf.  he year was 1895, the same year that x-rays were discovered.   At that time, Health Care was provided by a diversity of professions, including osteopaths, magnetic healers and “medical” doctors.   In those days, most medical education consisted of working as an “apprentice” for a medical doctor, and learning the craft by observation.
D.D. Palmer, the Father of Chiropractic, was a magnetic healer, with a huge  practice in Davenport, Iowa.   He had doubts about the “germ theory” as the complete explanation of the cause of all disease.   After all, if germs could kill…shouldn’t we all be dead?   He asked “how it was that 2 brothers could work in the same shop, eat the same food, sleep in the same bed, and that one would succumb to a disease while the other one would not”?
His belief was that it was not just the “seed” (or germ) which was the cause.   He felt that the “soil” or the bodies own recuperative (healing) power (which he later labeled the “innate intelligence”, and we now call homeostasis) was the missing part of the equation, which defined the continuum between health and “dis-ease”. One day D.D. was talking with Harvey Lillard, the man who owned the janitor service in his building.   Harvey was deaf, stone cold deaf.   He mentioned to D.D. that years before, while lifting a heavy weight, he felt something “snap” at the base of his neck.   It was several weeks later that his hearing started to “fade”.
D.D. was intrigued, and asked Harvey if he could examine his back.   Lillard said, “Sure, go ahead.” What D.D. Palmer “felt” (and we now call this “palpation”) was that one of the upper bones of the shoulder blades was sticking out much more than the one above or below it.

He convinced Harvey to lie down on the couch, and D.D. placed his hands on the specific bone that he thought was causing the problem and, as D.D. explained, “wracked it back into position”.   Wrack is not a good word. Pushed is a better word.

When Harvey got up, he stated that he could hear a horse drawn cart down in the street!   This was the first thing he had heard in 17 years!
Our “no drugs, no surgery” approach has remained true.  What I do as a chiropractor with the adjustment of the spine, is I try and remove the interference of the brain’s control of the body.   We call that interference, which impinges (pinches) the delicate nerves a “ subluxation

Dear Patients and Friends,

It’s almost the end of the year. Time flies. It’s also the big holiday season of Christmas              (Chanukah also lands on Christmas Eve this year so everyone gets to celebrate together).

Santa Claus became a part of the Christmas tradition around the Middle Ages… however, his part in Christmas was not popularized until after he was ‘depicted’ as a jolly stout old man wearing a red and white suit in the 19th century.

The character of Santa Claus is said to be inspired by Saint Nicholas, a bishop, who went around giving the poor children of his village gifts. The legend of Santa centers around the North Pole and his magical workshop of elves. Every year he makes presents for those children who are nice. Those who were naughty receive nothing… but a lump of coal. You’re a good patient, so expect a lot this year. 2017 is coming.

Strange Christmas Facts

Christmas is perhaps the most anticipated event of the year. It is a time of good natured gift exchange, feasting and celebration. Nothing beats the fun and good times that can be experienced during the Yuletide season. Yet Christmas is not without its strange associations, a few of these have been listed below, some may even elicit a chuckle or two.

  • Mince pie was said to be unlucky if cut with a knife, additionally it was considered to encourage bad luck when eaten outside of the period between Christmas Eve and the Twelfth Night. The great thing about Mince pie however, is that it somehow had the magical power to give you good luck if you ate one every day for the twelve days of Christmas.
  • Christmas Carols are great, right? Wrong, well at least according to some folks down in Pensacola Florida who were outraged at the loud singing that accompanied the rendition of a few old favorites at a Mall during the Christmas season. Maybe it wasn’t so much the carols as the horrible singing that may have sullied the performance.
  • “Pets are people too”, this may be what pet owners are thinking during the Christmas season. It has been estimated that at least 56 percent of Americans ‘sing’ to their pets. It may just be more fulfilling considering that pets cannot possibly complain.
  • The people at Reynolds et al make a substantial amount of money selling foil during the Yuletide season. It has been confirmed that at least 3000 tons of foil are used to wrap turkeys annually. The foil is light weight, but that is a ton of turkeys.
  • WARNING: Christmas shopping may be hazardous to your health. If you are an avid Christmas shopper statistics have concluded that you will be elbowed at least three times while shopping. Ouch!
  • Sending Christmas cards is still the in thing to do around Christmas time. Americans on average send out 28 Christmas cards to friends and family yearly, and guess what, it’s certainly not in vain either. Most will receive 28 for the same period. Hmmm, makes you wonder doesn’t it?
  • Christmas is a great time to exercise. You will walk an average of five miles between the parking lot and stores, however, don’t let this give you a false sense of security, as most people still gain those pesky Christmas pounds despite this.
  • Leftovers can sometimes be your enemy. Spoilt leftovers are responsible for 400,000 cases of post Christmas associated illnesses.

 Let’s not Forget Hanukka, Hannukah, Chanukah

Chanukah or Ḥanukah) is a Jewish holiday commemorating the rededication of the Holy Temple (the Second Temple) in Jerusalem at the time of the Maccabean Revolt against the Seleucid Empire. Tradition states that when they went to rededicate the Temple, they could only find enough holy oil for one night. When they lit the Temple lamp it lasted for eight days and was declared a miracle. Thus, Hanukkah is observed for eight nights and days, starting on the 25th day of Kislev according to the Hebrew calendar, which may occur at any time from late November to late December in the Gregorian calendar. It is also known as the Festival of Lights and the Feast of Dedication.

The festival is observed by the kindling of the lights of a unique candelabrum, the nine-branched menorah (also called a Chanukiah/Hanukiah), one additional light on each night of the holiday, progressing to eight on the final night.

It’s traditional to give small gifts, eat potato Latkes (pancakes), play with the dreidel (actually a betting game children play) and spend time with family.

Chanukah Joke

My mother once gave me two sweaters for Hanukkah. The next time we visited, I made sure to wear one. As we entered her home, instead of the expected smile, she said, “What’s the matter? You didn’t like the other one?”

Proverbs

“Better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.” – Chinese Proverb

“I ask not for a lighter burden, but for broader shoulders.” – Jewish Proverb

Just as a candle cannot burn without fire, men cannot live without a spiritual life.
– Hanukkah Quotes by Buddha

December JOKE of the Month

Three men passed away on Christmas Eve and were met by Saint Peter at the pearly gates with his book OPEN.

“In honor of this Holy season,” Saint Peter said, “Each one of you must possess something that symbolizes Christmas to get into heaven.”

The first man fumbled through his white pockets and pulled out a lighter. He flicked it on. “It represents a candle,” “You may pass through the pearly gates,” Saint Peter said.

The second man reached into his white pocket and pulled out a set of keys.

He shook them and said, “They’re bells Saint Peter.” Saint Peter looked at him and said, “You sir may pass through the pearly gates. Bless you my son.”

The third man started searching desperately through his white pockets and finally he found something and pulled it out. It was a pair of women’s glasses.

St. Peter looked at the man with a raised eyebrow and asked, “And just what do those symbolize?”

The man replied, “They are Carol’s.”

The Real Skinny on Holiday Weight Gain

Tipping the scales this holiday season?

Reports of your holiday weight gain have been greatly exaggerated. Media stories often suggest that the average person gains 7 to 10 pounds between Thanksgiving and Christmas. And in surveys, people say they gain, on average, about five pounds this time of year.

But several studies now show that the average weight gain during the winter holidays is just one pound. Whew, I’m glad I read that.

The news isn’t all good though. Most people don’t ever lose the pound of weight they put on during the holidays, according to a report in The New England Journal of Medicine. That’s the problem. Since the average weight gain during adulthood is about one to two pounds a year, that means much of midlife weight gain can be explained by your holiday eating.

For people who are already overweight, the holiday weight news is worse. Although the average gain is only one pound, people who are already overweight tend to gain a lot more. One study found that overweight people gained five pounds or more during the holidays.

And we start packing on that extra pound of holiday weight early in life. Researchers at the University of Oklahoma studied holiday weight gain among college students during the Thanksgiving break. The students were weighed the day before Thanksgiving, then weighed again about two weeks later.

The average weight gain for the 94 students was about one pound. Students who were of normal weight gained about a half a pound during the period. Students who were overweight, meaning their body mass index was 25 or more, gained about two pounds.

Holly Hull, the lead researcher on the Oklahoma study, says “Thanksgiving marks the beginning of a “high risk” time for the overweight. I think the number of people who only overeat at the Thanksgiving meal is slim to none,” said Dr. Hull.

The holiday season doesn’t represent one day of overeating. You have this period that extends through the New Year where there’s MORE alcohol, MORE snacks, MORE finger foods and appetizers that are energy dense.” If you’re overweight, talk to the front desk about our program.

Holiday Quotes 

The holiest of holidays are those kept by ourselves in silence and apart; The secret anniversaries of the heart.” Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

“A Christmas candle is a lovely thing; It makes no noise at all, But softly gives itself away.” – Eva Logue

CHIROPRACTIC STUFF

Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. I want you to think about this.

 It doesn’t say, Health is the state of NO SYMPTOMS.You can ‘feel great’ and still have heart problems, diabetes, kidney disease, etc. Health is a state of complete well-being, not a state of not having symptoms.  If you’re taking some drugs and think they are curing you, you’re wrong. Drugs help you cover up the PAIN, but they do absolutely nothing to CURE YOU.  Your body is the ONLY thing that cures you. The only thing, so make sure your body is checked at the office this month for alignment issues. If you’re not aligned, you’re crooked and when you’re crooked, you’re not healthy.

Don’t confuse feeling good and health. They aren’t necessarily the same thing. Call the office and get checked.

Can you remember when you were in the first grade? Probably not.

What I remember is that I didn’t understand anything — about reading, numbers, how to get along with my family members, or how to be a “success.”

I was young, so basically I was a sponge, waiting to soak up the water of education, and things that I wanted to do. I’d even soak up things I shouldn’t be soaking up… if you know what I mean. If I had arrived at the first grade already full of ‘stuff’ I wouldn’t have been ready to learn. I felt like I knew everything when I hit about 15 years old, but that’s another story for another newsletter.

For me I want to keep learning more about health, so I can learn how to keep my patients healthy in the future.

As your doctor, I attend conferences that give me the tools I need to help you. At this time of year, I find that being with my family and my patients is one of the best parts of my life. Thank you again for being a patient.

PATIENT NEWSLETTER

Dear Patients and Friends,

Wow. The holidays just keep on rolling around. It seems like as I age, the days just get faster and faster. I know every time I celebrate a holiday like Thanksgiving, it seems like the next month, I’m celebrating it again. Now don’t get me wrong. I do not have any problem celebrating, but here’s one thing I have learned as I’ve gotten older.

When you overeat, and a lot of people do that – there is a greater chance of you having colds and the flu. I know that sounds crazy, but if you watch people, when they overeat, they usually get sick a lot easier.

Enjoy the holidays, enjoy family, but be careful at what speed you consume all that food, and how you handle yourself when you can get seconds. Be careful & make sure you’re adjusted on a regular basis, plus drink plenty of good water. If you’re going to eat lots of sugar and starches, prepare to gain weight. If you keep your food consumption to a lot of protein, and good fats, you can actually lose weight fast, and keep it off even through Thanksgiving.

November Thought Provoking Questions

  1. Would you be willing to reduce your life expectancy by 10 years to become extremely attractive or famous?
  2. What is the difference between being alive and truly living?
  3. When is the time to stop calculating risk and rewards, and just go ahead and do what you know is right?
  4. If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make a mistake?
  5. What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you?
  6. When was the last time you noticed the sound of your own breathing?
  7. What do you love?  Have any of your recent actions openly expressed this love?
  8. 5 years from now, will you remember what you did yesterday?  What about the day before that?  Or the day before that?
  9. Decisions are being made right now.  The question is:  Are you making them for yourself, or are you letting others make them for you?

Does how much you eat affect how long

YOU… LIVE?

This is a good question to ask yourself if you’re thinking about eating a ton of good tasting food during Thanksgiving. Your body needs food to survive. However, the very process of extracting energy from food – creates stress on your body.

Overeating creates even more stress on your body. That’s part of the reason why it can lead to a shorter lifespan and serious health problems common among older people, including cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes.

Calorie restriction, an approach primarily (but not exclusively) used in a research setting, is more tightly controlled than normal healthy eating or dieting. One thing I want to say here and I hope you get it. Just because you CUT down on calories, doesn’t mean you’re going to lose WEIGHT.

Calorie restriction is commonly defined by at least a 30 percent decrease in calorie consumption from the normal diet with a balanced amount of protein, fat, vitamins, and minerals. In the 1930s, investigators found that laboratory rats and mice lived up to 40 percent longer when fed a calorie-restricted diet, compared to mice fed a normal diet.
Now here’s where I’m going to throw in my two cents. If you eat the right kinds of food, say a good wholesome salad, you can basically eat all the calories you want. There’s a lot more to that statement, but I just want you to know that calorie counting is NOT the way to lose weight.

Scientists say they have observed that calorie restriction increased the lifespan of many other animal models. When this type of eating is started at an early age or as a young adult, calorie restriction was found to increase the health span of many animal models by delaying onset of age-related disease and delaying normal age-related decline. I would say if you eat the right kinds of food (for example a healthy salad with lots of good protein and good carbs), than you’re going to live longer.

Some researchers wonder if the effects of calorie restriction are controlled by the brain and nervous system. I believe it is controlled by the brain and nervous system. But here’s the deal since we’re talking about weight gain, weight loss and eating. Calorie restriction may influence hormonal balance, and this can be a good thing or a bad thing.

Here’s all you need to take away from this little excerpt. Be careful who you believe, and eat plenty of good fats, and protein. If you do, you’ll lose weight. Even at Thanksgiving.

 

Thanksgiving Jokes

A turkey farmer was always experimenting with breeding to perfect a better turkey. His family was fond of the leg portion for dinner and there were never enough legs for everyone. After many frustrating attempts, the farmer was relating the results of his efforts to his friends at the general store get together. “Well I finally did it! I bred a turkey that has 6 legs!”

They all asked the farmer how it tasted.
“I don’t know” said the farmer. “I never could catch the darn thing!”

—————————————————–

The pro football team had just finished their daily practice session when a large turkey came strutting onto the field. While the players gazed in amazement, the turkey walked up to the head coach and demanded a tryout. Everyone stared in silence as the turkey caught pass after pass and ran right through the defensive line. When the turkey returned to the sidelines, the coach shouted, “You’re terrific!!! Sign up for the season, and I’ll see to it that you get a huge bonus.” “Forget the bonus,” the turkey said, “All I want to know is, does the season go past Thanksgiving Day?”

What’s REALLY

Important To You?

 

I’m about to tell you right now and find out if you AGREE with me.

Your nervous system is THE most important system of the entire body as it controls and co-ordinates every other cell, tissue, muscle, gland, organ and system!  It is very well housed in your “Spinal Column.”

No wonder I am so interested in your Spine and Nervous System!

Your nervous system is a major and complex system in the human body. It is the controlling unit which is in touch with all the parts of the body through signals and nerves – your spinal column is the house for this amazing system.     Here’s what we do for you when you’re adjusted. We remove interferences to this delicate system which allows your body to communicate with itself as nature intended – so that it can heal itself naturally.

Here’s Some Interesting Facts
  • The most sensitive nerves are found at the base of the spinal cord.
  • The spinal cord has around 135,000,000 neurons. If one could spread the human brain out like a cloth, its surface area would cover 25,000 square centimeters.
  • Nerve cells are very long, up to one meter where they connect the toes to the spinal cord.
  • Get this: The nerve cell in the human brain resembles a goldfish.
  • One of the trillions of things your body does with no input from you is replace dead and dying cells with healthy new ones.  It’s happening right here right now!
  • You have a new intestinal lining every 2 – 3 days, a new stomach lining every 5 days, a new skin every 28 days, and a new liver every 42 days!
  • Your body creates one billion new cells every hour!  I don’t want to tell you this, but that’s a lot of new cells every hour.
  • This renewal process replaces the old with a whole new you.   I like the sound of that.

Do you?

  • Your body relies on your current cell pattern as a guide for the replacement of new cells.  Regular Chiropractic Care here at the office can help establish, new healthier patterns.  This is why we at this clinic are leading the Wellness Revolution.
